As of this moment we have no idea, beyond some vague hints about an unhealthy interest in the sexual pursuits of French President Macron, and a souvenir/party favor from his pardon of Roger Stone, just what the fuck the Orangeutan stole in the way of sensitive information on his way out of the WhiteHouse.
One thing we can be very sure of is that no matter what he pilfered, the Narcissist-in-Chief thought whatever it was would ultimately benefit himself, and himself alone… because that is the only consideration that could occupy the very small part of his reptilian brain not devoted to eating, fucking and base survival.
NBC News’ Marc Caputo does not know either exactly what secrets he stole either, but does think he knows what asswipe plans to do with them.
“I’m being led to believe it’s not detailed, it’s not the stuff we’ll want to see,” Caputo said. “We’ll want to see, like, okay, which foreign leaders potentially were in these classified documents he allegedly had or whatever. However, it’s going to be more detailed. How much? We have no clue. The judge yesterday said she would start to unseal it after the court hearing, today is technically after the court hearing — we’ll see.”
“I think a broader issue here is what you’re also going to see in cases, again, if there’s a prosecution, of something called graymail, which is where a defendant in a case where there’s classified information tries to push the release of that classified information, knowing the government doesn’t want it released,” Caputo continued, “and that can sort of psych the government out of wanting to release that highly classified or sensitive information. Now there is a Classified Information Procedures Act, which allows for the courts to kind of go through and handle these issues and release redacted information. But the fact of the matter is we’ve never had a former president and future presidential candidate, likely future presidential candidate, on trial, especially over stuff like this regarding issues related to his presidency or his past presidency, so, we’re, as I said, we’re in uncharted waters.”
So, this may be the drama that is playing out in drumpf’s Judge shopped Special Master court case, where the judge has signaled that she might limit the DOJ’s access to the stolen docs, while allowing intelligence officials to survey the national security implications of the material being revealed.
And we have now reached the point in this farce where where Judge Cannon, doing her best Hamlet, takes the stage for her soliloquy “To reveal, or not to reveal; that is the question…” while Merrick Garland has to weigh how much damage might be done the nation by unmasking drump’s perdifity.
One would almost have to know what secrets are missing to even form an intelligent conclusion.
Some thoughts from people at least as smart as I:
Please already. The DOJ knew about the missing documents for months. Codes were changed. Identities were scrubbed. As usual Trump thinks he's got something, when he's actually got a handfull of nothing.

Maybe, I hope you are right.
“You better not hold me accountable for my crimes or else I’ll commit more crimes” is not the defense he may think it is.

May kinda depend on what as in those empty folders.
Everything this monster does, for his entire, criminal career, is to gain leverage against anyone that opposes him, for future blackmail.
Indictments cannot come soon enough.

That much is certainly true.
